Sony SXA-R110 SXRD 4096 x 2160 ProjectorSony has announced that their 4K SRX-R110 SXRD projector is ready for shipping. They have been demonstrating the projector in Burbank, CA and will be showing it in ShowEast trade show in Florida. Here is an excerpt from the press release

Thirty-three years after Sony introduced its first electronic projection system, the KP-7200, the company maintains its position as an industry leader and innovator. The SXRD 4K projector offers superb contrast, vivid color, and 4096 x 2160 pixel resolution, which displays images at nearly four times the resolution of current high-definition displays.

The new SRX-R110 model is specified at 10,000 ANSI Lumens and is designed for screens up to 40 feet wide.

"The progress made to date is impressive," said attendee Michael Karagosian, a partner of Karagosian MacCalla Partners. "The display of the media block card was unexpected and very welcome. This is a central element toward a digital cinema-centric solution."

Sony plans to follow up the debut screenings with another round of demonstrations at this week's ShowEast trade show in Orlando, Fla. In addition, a request will be made that NATO organize and set specifications for a side-by-side test of 2K and 4K technologies and work in conjunction with the Digital Cinema Lab/Entertainment Technology Center and the ASC to set parameters for these tests. Following ShowEast, Sony will present a white paper at SMPTE/NY on the latest developments for SXRD 4K front projectors.
What can I say, if you are one of those that have a 40 feet wide living room, get ready to become a happy customer. And please share your feelings starting from the moment when the freight is delivered! Oh, and no wonder that shows are held in Burbank and Orlando. First for movie studios and second for "individuals".
